and. the old saying i and the rest. will be every week. fighting in eastern ukraine leaves the city of slovyansk with no water or electricity and almost all its hospitals closed while the president's repeated fouls of a cease fire are yet to be fulfilled. and private help iraq's asking the u.s. to carry out airstrikes against sunni insurgents as jihadists are taking control of the first the pace than even the american troops managed during the two thousand and three invasion. plus the other russian president's left red faced after alexander lukashenko falls victim to a phone prankster pretending to be the son of ukraine's ousted president.

a ceasefire he said it will be brief but enough time to allow anti government forces to lay down their arms it's not the first time poroshenko has promised to put an end to the bloodshed since he was elected by in may on the very day of the vote he said his first presidential visit would be to the restive done yet squeegee didn't happen he went to poland to meet barack obama instead pledged to bring peace and put an end to the firing many times and promised to bring about a ceasefire at least twice because the new york log believes that the violence will continue with the president using the truce to buy time so he can press for. so-called terrorists in the east so it has a lot to plan the fact is they haven't been able to gain control of our country. they're far from back.
killed near the city of lugansk. two members of a t.v. crew have died when they came under artillery shelling the bodies arrived earlier today ukrainian investigators blame the attack on anti government forces but out is not the pitcher outlined by the only survivor of the assault the cruise cameraman. and he said it was a targeted attack by ukraine's national guard the killings triggered an international response the reporters without borders confirmed the two saying that they have put the total number of journalists killed while covering here's military operation to five ukraine's envoy to the un though said the russian journalists
killed was standing near self-defense forces had no press markings and therefore to blame for the tragedy themselves. in other news iraq has urged the u.s. to launch air strikes against isis militants who seized a large part of the country they are the ones that we have marked here in red washington's already carrying out airborne surveillance the hardest have been closing in on baghdad since taking the country's second largest city more than a week ago the closest they've come so far though to the capital was on monday that was in an attack on the city of baquba that we've marked here for you it's very close to sixty kilometers in fact away from baghdad however soldiers managed to repel that particular offensive and what you can see coming up now will be recent footage from the northern city of by sea where insurgents tried to seize iraq's biggest all refinery however government forces fought them off there as well and in
between taking major city after another isis is put together a glowing report outlining the group's achievements but if you go to school off explain. fifteen thousand fighters ten thousand operations in iraq one thousand assassinations and all last year alone these state of iraq and syria and now normally more notoriously as isis has been slicing through iraq or being closer and closer to baghdad and they're running a slick modern p.r. campaign. to even publishing an official report of their activities using computer generated graphics it paints a clear picture of the terror organization including the types and amounts of weapons they use their strategy details of operations and targets former intelligence officers claim it produces its press releases like a giant corporation trying to create an image of a world structured disciplined and effective organization or to attract funding but their actions speak loudly too as isis fighters have almost to reach the iraqi
capital killing scores of people along the way in just around seven b. well during the u.s. led invasion of the country it took the allied forces twenty two days to reach baghdad also a goal of isis is to create a new islamic state merging parts of iraq and syria into one now it's believed that the movement grew out of al qaeda in iraq emerging from the cast of the two thousand and three invasion to day it has fifteen thousand fighters most of whom are thought to be from neighboring middle eastern countries but around two thousand are believed to have come from europe including britain isis has also become known for extreme brutality including widespread beheadings and crucifixions most of its funding is traced to southeast asia particularly indonesia because she would the biggest muslim population on earth would fall in the arrest of high profile jihad is there it's that extremists are now turning their attention to the conflicts in iraq and syria while baghdad may have officially asked for help u.s.
defense officials are reportedly lacking intelligence information in order to carry out precise airstrikes defense analyst ivan eland says that getting involved iraq again would be a major blow to america's federal budget. but providing more weapons to the iraqi military i think would be a nightmare they have to the weapons of already ended up in the isis hands a least a lot of weapons have so then you have the other thing is a good be a ground campaign or it could be a full fledged air campaign and the economic consequences of course all that costs money and the united states is already has a seventeen trillion dollar debt and i think we're already overextended around the world and to get back into iraq is going to cost more money and more billions and i think as i say the american people are tired of not only the lives lost american lives overseas in these places but also the money spent you know they've spent trillions in iraq already. if you had to all website you can follow along.

of one man inside that building is two years since julian a son sought refuge in london's ecuadorian embassy inside the bottom floor flat in this red brick mansion in that time the wiki leaks editor in chief has still managed to run for the australian senate and become the subject of a hollywood film he's also had to share the title of the world's most famous whistleblower programmes last year two years inside the building for a son also means two years camped outside it for the london's metropolitan police the bill for guarding that door in case a son should ever emerge is something like eleven thousand pounds a day the ecuadorian ambassador admits his nonpaying tenant is suffering but sweden won't give assurances that whistleblower won't be extradited to the us if he travels to stockholm for questioning over allegations of sexual assault which means the i.q. dorian ambassador isn't ruling out the possibility his unlikely houseguest could be

marketing campaign against them that's been a massive clearly this needs resolution i mean dreams of being you know hasn't had any sunlight or fresh air for two years and i think it's cruel it's hard to see how any change can happen because the british government seem determined to continue spending all this money to sort of maintain a guard on the remember. in the u.s. three convicts of now been put to death using lethal injection and that is despite the continued controversy over the effectiveness of the drugs being used and the real execution by homer convert an hour to die and out of drugs the details including the composition of the drugs and if they'd ever been tested are being kept secret first. because it would kill u.s. troops in the region. elsewhere libya's authorities of condemned the u.s. for snatching this suspected leader of a deadly attack on the american embassy in benghazi tripoli described the arrest as

institutions form confirms twenty nine point one trillion dollars in market investments held by four hundred public sector institutions in one hundred sixty two countries which could potentially contribute to quote overheated asset prices well this is confirmation of what we've been saying that the money velocity is historic lows that is the same money is not circulating through the economy so not being loaned out it's not being real loaned out the fractional reserve system is not really kicking in there's been no growth despite the trillions of dollars of money printing people ask where is that money gone well according to what you just said the money is printed by the sense of it goes to people like hank paulson or john paul or a hedge fund manager or it's a gift from the central bank they print hundreds of billions of trillions and they buy stocks the state that to be rich is to be virtuous.
